Day 7 – Playmobil Fun Park

Posted by D under family

The four of us, my sister and Ben went to the Playmobil Fun Park today. And as required by the name of the facility, we did have fun.

The place was packed – lots and lots of people. After all this was the nicest day so far during the Bavarian school summer holidays. But given the nature of the attractions it was still quite easy for the girls to play and entertain themselves.

You’ll need to figure out which one of the pictures is from today and which from three years ago…

I should have mentioned that jet lag is over, so the girls are back to waking up around 6am – only we hadn’t clued in to that and put them to bed really late again last night. So the girls were tired and a bit cranky today. Lacking two hours of sleep can do that to you. Ask me how I know.

I know that I will pay for this picture at some point in the future – but for now this preview of H1’s college life (taken right after lunch) is too good not to post…

Actually at least for one of the things we did I know why. The six seater tire swing where another dad and I were pushing the girls and a changing cast of four other kids to the breaking point… the swing had so much momentum that I could hold on to it, have it drag me into the air and then use my weight to pull it down again and accelerate…

One last comment about the snack time picture. Note the girls eating apples and Ben eating ice cream? While there are many great snarky comments I could make, the truth is that the girls were just already done with their ice cream (they got one scoop, Ben had two). So there isn’t a “healthier choice” story here…
